Career Education, The Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 and the Spanish Speaking.
de los Santos, Alfredo, Jr.
Ideas, comments, and points made by the participants at the Symposium for Bilingual-Bicultural Manpower Development are included in this paper. Some basic information about career education (its philosophy, definitions, and models) are outlined. The models show the 3 main phases in the career process: awareness, orientation and exploration, and preparation. Some issues pertaining to the implementation of the career education concept and the provisions of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA) for implementing career education models to better serve the Spanish Speaking are discussed. Issues, particularly as they relate to the problems of the Spanish Speaking student in higher education, are: the career education definition; its financing; curriculum development and articulation; the need for in-service training for present professional staff; and the lack of instructional materials. Three basic recommendations are: the Secretary of Labor should fund a bilingual, K-16 career education model, as authorized under Title III of CETA 73, to serve the Spanish Speaking; CETA 73 funds should be used to provide educational opportunities to the Spanish Speaking to staff programs which will primarily serve them; and agencies/organizations/institutions that are charged with implementation the first 2 recommendations should be given the responsibility and resources to develop bilingual materials for youngsters and adults.
